How to Hide the drives(c:,d:,e:,...etc) in Ur Computer
This is a great trick you can play on your friends. To disable the display of local or networked drives when you click My Computer.

  • Go to Start -> Run.
  • Type regedit
  • Now go to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
  • Now in the right pane, create a new D WORD item and name it No Drives (it is case sensitive).
  • Now modify it's value and set it to 3FFFFFF (Hexadecimal) .
  • Now restart your computer.
  • So, now when you click on My Computer, no drives will be shown(all gone...).

To enable display of drives in My Computer, simply delete this D WORD item that you created. Again restart your computer. You can now see all the drives again.
